Pre-race routine:

None really..
Woke up .. thought the race started at 8:00. it really started at 7:30 as I found out waiting in line at the porta potties at around 7:20 :)

Ate a Zone bar and had a bottle of gatorade.
Event warmup:

Jogged out to the starting line and did some light stretching.
  • 1h 33m 33s
  • 9.32 miles
  • 10m 02s  min/mile

This was my longest run so far including training. I felt really good at about mile six and decided to step up the pace a little. Judging by my times i'm not sure that that speed increase lasted very long. I had lots of fun though. It was a very rewarding race for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really. I could have probably had a faster time had I waited till the last mile to step up the pace but it wouldn't have made that much difference. I also should have taken my own hydration with me.
Post race
Warm down:

ate a banana some pizza and gatorade walked around waiting for the awards.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably my weight. but i'm not too too concerned about the time now. Just glad I ran the whole way and felt strong at the end

Event comments:

I'd do it again.. depending on where I am next year..

Congratulations Will! Good pacing, especially going a little slower at the beginning.

Is this the same Will that wasn't sure if he should sign up for a 5k earlier this year?
